Incorporating sweet touches to your bouquet can include tying left over fabric from your dress alterations around the stems, old handkerchiefs from Grandma, lockets with photos of loved ones, and more! This bouquet from @everyone_deserves_flowers gave me all the heart eyes 😍#greenismyfavoritecolor

Yesterday I decided to start my #365project#photoadaychallenge . I feel like I take a million photos a day already, but I wanted to challenge myself and hold myself accountable on the gram. So this photo is from yesterday. I was in awe over how grown up my little babies looked, and how they were sitting patiently waiting for me to make them some eggs...the patience didn't last long, but I was able to catch this rare calm moment. And we're still loving our @ie.care bibs! I haven't used our others since. #day1
It's official, we have OONIE BABIES! Patrick told me he is the proud father of these seven little guys, straight from the #ooniverse 😂 The best part? Their names are balloonie, moonie, loonie, joonie, soonie, 💩-nie (Patrick's favorite), Fred and Kevin. I named the last two 😂 Thank you @moosecraftcafe for creating the one and only thing that keeps my kids occupied long enough for me to wash my hair AND my face at the same time. You are my heroes 💕 #moosetoys#inflatestickcreate#oonies#sponsored
I don't post a ton of pics with me in them so that was my goal today 💗 ••••••••••
So it's happened... I'm working on my blog. I've been working on it all day today actually lol hopefully it has some great stuff for everyone 😉😬
20 weeks of bubbles and cheeks 💛 also can't get over how sweet Aiden is - always jumping in to help "talk Ainsee" when I need to get something, sharing his toys with her, and looking for ways to make her laugh 😚
My Wednesday Why, answers a question this crazy lovable guy asked me this morning. He had a bad dream, causing him to wake up super early, and he caught me exercising. He asked, "Mom, why do you wake up in the middle of the night to exercise???" 😂 We'll It wasn't actually the middle of the night, it was 4:30 a.m. But I got what he was asking. It was still pitch black outside.
My "why" for waking up so early is because I made a commitment to wake up 30 minutes everyday to exercise. It gives me energy. It builds my strength. It is good for my overall health. Waking up early means I don't have to miss out on time with my kids. I am showered and ready to greet them when they wake up and give them my full attention.
Is it a sacrifice? YES!
Is it worth it? ABSOLUTELY!
Yes, I'm still on vacation in Kauai with my man + his family.
But as most everyone knows, vacations aren't just about the pretty scenery that adorns the "Wish you were here" postcards.
Instead, there are thousands of tiny moments along the way that leave you breathless.
Like playing "pirates" on the playground with Erik's 4-year old niece, and sitting side-by-side on the lounge chair as we chat about our adventures.
Or THIS... Erik with his nephew on his lap, tracing letters and reading together.
And long after the sunsets fade and we're far away from the waterfalls, I know already that these tiny heart-melty moments are the ones that will stick with me the most.
Sometimes it's worth the hassle of getting everyone up and out for a pre-school dog walk!! Just look at that early morning sun. 😍 I'm fairly sure that was frost as well on the grass. Autumn is coming! What's your absolute favourite thing about Autumn? 🍁
For our 5th Anniversary we decided that we'd go with the traditional gift theme of wood by getting a dwarf lime tree that we could take with us from place to place. It was adorable and we were so proud of it. It survived the first two winters, we thought we were golden. So when it started to warm up again one spring we put it out on the porch to get some sun while we were gone. When we came home we found the tipped over pot, a leaf, the ball of roots, and a cow hoof print in the spilled soil. One of the ranch cows had demolished it. I might have cried a little.
That was just the start of the many many plants I'd kill over the years. Poppies. Cactus. Bamboo. Succulents. Hollyhocks. Clover. Decorative grass. You name a plant, I've probably killed one.
So, a part of me is super excited to have these in our porch, but then a part of me is screaming, "You kill every plant that comes into your possession! What are you doing?!?!" I'm trying again. I know, I know...insanity is trying the same thing and expecting different results. But instead I like to take Thomas Edison's approach: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." I will find the plant I cannot kill.
But in the meantime...any great plant tips?!
Happy Wednesday!! I survived my first trip to the store with all my babies!! Dramatic I know 🤷🏻♀️🙏🏼 I felt productive, anxiety free and AWESOME! 🌈
This is BIG for me because I had so much anxiety about having postpartum anxiety after this pregnancy--so SiLly! After I had Jaxon I was pretty terrified to leave the house and it was an awful feeling 🙄 .
So I will take those baby steps and keep moving forward! Going on a walk later with my babies! On with the rest of the day!! ☀️💪
This little delicious munchkin of mine has been doing SO well this week. A bit of rebellion here and there because, that's just engrained deep in her soul, but she's finally starting to understand why following directions can be important - and actually embracing the rules! I have to remind myself pretty often that she JUST turned 3 but I am so proud of what she's accomplished thus far. She also signed her name on her artwork today for the FIRST time!!! Check it out in my stories ✨❤️🤗 Floral skirt by the amazing @arroseco_ #homeschooling#littlebabymimi#homeschoollife#momtographer#momtog#clickinmom#brandrep#arroseco#floralskirt#instakids#instafashion
